AndrewC (322) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2011
Very pale brown. Nice clean crisp bitter with a biscuity malt and and well balanced slightly lemon-meringue short lived hop. I was really surprised quite how much I enjoyed it.

CanadaCam (109) - CANADA - JUL 28, 2006
One of the FIRST beers I legally bought once I came of age and I got hooked on it. Nice webbing in the glass, good colour, no aftertaste. A great beer.

Bottle.Obviously an accountant thought there was a gap in the market for a bottled bland bitter. The marketing person decided to call it Best which it isn’t. Ordinary and only to be drunk if you are really desperate.Lets hope that it sinks without trace.

50 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK. Medium amber colour, thin head. Stale caramel aroma, sweet flavour that finishes sharp and slightly astringent.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. A little nuts in the nose and perhaps a whiff of floral British hops. Light in body, caramel and nuts and a metallic touch. Very subdued bitterness. But a pleasant little drinker. 180110

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2005
UPDATED: APR 3, 2005 First impressions were of the odd watery, yet mouth-filling, feel. A deep malty richness, with decent complexity. The taste is pretty good on the whole, but otherwise not a lot to say, really, but can’t complain either.
